News & Announcements
We were thrilled to see so many people come together to celebrate community, healing, and access to art for all. Our attendees got creative with Boston-based artists Rebecca McGee Tuck and Jamaal Eversley, and decorated fabric leaves with art and inspirational messages of hope and encouragement to their community, such as “Your Joy is Meaningful to Humanity” and “Your Community is Your Greatest Asset!” These leaves now hang on a 9-foot-tall wooden tree sculpture painted by Eversley, which will rotate through local host sites around Boston. See the completed Together Through Art sculpture for the first time at Opening Our Doors Festival on October 9!
We were also honored to have Mayor Kim Janey visit the event and speak about the power of art and the role artists have played in helping us navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as decorate her own leaf on behalf of the City of Boston! Participants were also able to meet and take photos with Wally from the Red Sox, build relationships with each other over pizza and ice cream, and get creative with a balloon twister and chalk drawings on Jersey Street.
